West Yorkshire in December

Dull, miserable, gloomy, dark, wet and windy! This is West Yorkshire in December. It didn't even bother to get light today. So instead of going out with my camera on the last day of my annual leave - which I booked especially so I could go see the Great Northern Divers that are hanging around on the reservoirs above Huddersfield - I stayed in and tiled the kitchen floor. Yes it was that bad!

For people who live in nicer climates who want to simulate winter in West Yorkshire. Get a large electric fan, stand inside a walk-in refrigerator, throw a bucket of water over yourself, turn on the fan and then close your eyes!

Roll on spring!


  1. I am so sorry about your day ~ but your post made me laugh ( I know Iz wicked) If it is any consolation, it has been pretty much the same here in the Midlands...happy days, it will be snowing by the end of the week ;-)

  2. Like living inside tuppaware! At least the divers will be staying put.
